About The Team

Skipper: Bill Menninger
Boat: Migration

Utilizing a diverse range of sailors from collegiate champions to veteran keel boat sailors, Newport Harbor Yacht Club has used the spring and summer to train for the regatta. The team was selected based on their respective sailing resumes and background in asymmetrical keel boat racing. At the top of everything is skipper Jonathan Pinckney. With over 45 years of racing experience and multiple championship titles, Pinckney is a strong leader. With Brian Bissell as tactician by his side they form a solid base of experience and talent. Planning and preparation for the Qualification Series and Invitational Cup has been in process for over 2 years. The last time that Newport Harbor YC competed in this event was in the 2011 Cup, when NHYC finished in fifth place.
